One of the biggest misconceptions is that Dr. Sondhi and Dr. Biggs are just like your general dentist. The truth is that they are actually very different from your family dentist. It is true that both dentists and orthodontists care about helping you enjoy a lifetime of good dental and oral health, their methodology is very different.
While a dentist treats the overall health of the teeth, an orthodontist is seen due to very specific concerns regarding the positioning of the teeth. Most of the patients that we see are concerned with the alignment of their teeth/jaws. It is important for an orthodontist to see children as early as age 7. At that age, it is possible to detect problems that have not become too advanced to treat. Your family dentist may also refer your child when they feel appropriate.
Another common misconception about orthodontists, is that they only treat children. It is true that when you visit an orthodontic clinic, you will see a lot of young kids, but many teenagers and adults are in active treatment at any given time. Because the alignment of your teeth can change for several different reasons at any point in life, orthodontic treatment can be recommended at any age.
